Amazon currently has the NVIDIA Shield TV on sale for $130.60. The price is a bit strange because the Shield TV is on sale for $139.00, but there is also a 5% off coupon on the page. When you “clip” the coupon, you’ll see the final $130.60 price during checkout. Thanks to that extra coupon, this is among the lowest prices that the Shield TV has ever been. This is a lightening deal, so it will end some time later today.
One of the confusing and cumbersome aspects of using Amazon’s Alexa to control smart home devices is the need to sometimes say “Alexa, ask…” before issuing a command. Prefacing a command with “ask” or “tell” is necessary when a smart home device manufacturer provides capabilities that go beyond what Amazon supports in their regular set of Alexa smart home control commands. Amazon is now allowing developers to extend the capabilities of regular smart home Alexa skills with extra functionality so that they don’t need to resort to a custom skill that requires the user to say “ask” before issuing an advanced command.

Paramount Network has just updated their app to now support Amazon Fire TV devices. If you’re not familiar with the channel, that’s because it used to be called Spike TV until it was rebrand at the start of the year. That rebranding came with a shift in programming towards a wider demographic than the old male-centric Spike channel. Most of the content in the new app requires activating the app with a cable provider to watch. You’ll find reality shows, such as Lip Sync Battle and Ink Masters, in the app, as well as new original shows, like Yellowstone and Waco.
